September 28, 1936 - August 27, 2021

Carol A. Young, age 84, of Middletown, DE, formerly of Newark, passed away suddenly on Friday, August 27, 2021.

Born in Dover, NJ, on September 28, 1936, she was the daughter of the late Donald E. and Nila (Wellington) Kyle.

Carol went to work for the city of Newark and dedicated over 40 years to the city as a bookkeeper and payroll specialist, retiring in 2009. When she wasn’t working, you could find Carol curled up with an iced tea and a good book or watching the Atlanta Braves on television.

Davenport (Dennis), both of Middletown; grandchildren, Robert Larkin, Timothy Larkin, Michelle Young, Andrew Young, Patrick Young, Kevin Young, and Sean Young; and great-granddaughter, Ally Young.
